Tell us about your experience in the industry

I have been a practicing artist for about 40 years exhibiting in solo and group shows. I have won national art competitions and have been a regular finalist in the National Contemporary Art Award. I have judged the national No. 8 Art award. My work has included painting, metal sculpture and kinetic sound sculpture with a recent foray into photography.

What keeps you busy outside of Media Arts?

Making sculpture consumes a lot of my time and I’m often found in my shed working on these. Photography and in particular macro photography opens up a world that is often overlooked. This has given me a hunger to explore our wold.
